VISUAL EF9ECTS | Architecture and the Chess Game of Form & Story
Inscribed on one side, FORM: Architecture is the stage set for the drama of life.
Inscribed on the other side, STORY: Architecture is a story told through a building.”
— JEF7REY HILDNER
IN VISUAL EF9ECTS, THE ARCHITECT PAINTER JEF7REY HILDNER builds on signature themes and concepts he lays out in Daedalus 9. The basis of his talk for the Symposium on Formalism (2016) at the Syracuse University School of Architecture Program in Florence, VISUAL EF9ECTS reflects Hildner’s quest to design buildings that trade in the Silver Coin of Architecture: an architecture that presents a creative demonstration of the Chess Game of Art, where the White Knight of Form (Aesthetics) and the Black Knight of Story (Symbolics) team up to make a Significant Architecture.
ARCHITECT, PAINTER, AND WRITER JEF7REY HILDNER launched The Architect Painter Press in 2005 under the banner, “Live Brave.” The Architect Painter Press presents Hildner’s buildings, paintings, and insights—work that reflects his focus on the visible and invisible architecture of life and art. The Architect Painter Press also seeks to present the work of other artists. Current titles range from Hildner's pamphlet, Picasso Lessons, to his books Daedalus 9, Garches 1234, Henry Trucks — Painter, Metaphysical Warrior, and Visual Ef9ects. His work also appears in a wide array of other venues—for example, Architectural Record, Journal of Architectural Education, ANY, Oz, The Christian Science Monitor, IMDb, and Global Architecture Houses. The book Architectural Formalism, by Hakan Anay, features Hildner’s essay “Formalism: Move | Meaning” alongside essays by theorists Rosalind Krauss, Peggy Deamer, Robert Slutzky, and Colin Rowe. Hildner received an Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture award for excellence in teaching. His project Dante | Telescope House won the New Jersey Chapter of The American Institute of Architects “Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Design.” Hildner also writes under the names Madison Gray and Eliot Plum. He paints under the name Henry Trucks. Hildner’s one-word life theme—architecture—shapes his quest, his outlook, and his output, including his work as screenwriter and story architect. He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Princeton University.
